NVIDIA set to launch Desktop Optimus, ready to transform your desktop

NVIDIA's Desktop Optimus, coming to a desktop near you soon

NVIDIA have plans to launch their Desktop Optimus at COMPUTEX Taipei this coming June. One of the most surprising things about it is that it will be free and no license agreement is needed. The technology works like LucidLogix's Virtu where it allows dynamic swapping between iGPU and dGPU based on the applications nature and also uses Intel's Sandy Bridge Quick Sync technology whilst doing video transcoding jobs.

Desktop Optus will support Intel's H61, H67 and Z68-powered chipsets and won't require special versions of discrete graphics cards and will allow motherboard makers to implement it using a software "key".
